September 21, 2016

Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 29, 2016, at 2:30 PM ET, as Surescripts convenes some of healthcare technology’s most highly regarded thought leaders for a live streaming video chat:
The State of Health IT and the Business of Interoperability.

As part of National Health IT Week and our recently released 2015 National Progress Report, we’ll discuss where #HITProgress is today, and how the business of interoperability can drive industry progress tomorrow.

Four industry experts will talk about how the industry has grown and overcome longstanding obstacles to accessing and exchanging high-quality patient data. They’ll discuss the business of interoperability, focusing on both existing technologies that require action and collaboration now, versus those that are still in demand or need to be developed. Our experts will also share real-world examples of how doctors, pharmacists, payers and health IT vendors are achieving safe, secure and accurate health data exchange every day.
